I work at TPWD at a State Park and found this one close to our headquarters. At first I though it might be locus but looking at locus online I couldn’t fit one that look like it. Thanks
This is a Cicada, though in some parts of the country they are called Locusts. We believe your Cicada is in the genus Tibicen, and in our opinion, the closest match is to Tibicen resh which may be viewed on BugGuide.
